Rave Review: John Szabo, MS on 2011 Vieux Telegraphe CdP

WINERY PROFILE | Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe

“From the difficult 2011 vintage, Vieux Télégraphe’s Châteauneuf is fine success I’d say, with massive structure and ultra-ripe and concentrated black berry fruit. This is still years away from prime enjoyment, but within 4-6 years this should make for a compelling bottle, one of the better wines from the vintage. One would have to chalk up its character to Vieux Télégraph’s old vines and exceptional terroir, able to handle heat stress, drought and generally erratic weather better than most. Tasted October 2014. Value Rating: **”
